Please see attached ebay listing for a very good Owari tsuba - unusual asymmetrical design with great iron.

I have added further pictures of this tsuba to email this morning including details of a previous owners collection notes ( Japanese ) and better pictures of the iron colour and quality.

Also has a very nice fitted box and cover.

Kindest regards

Michael

MIchael,

 

That is an exceptionally nice looking Owari.

 

Both George and I have been trying to find a custom fitted silk jacket maker for those fitted boxes.

Given the fitted boxes cost about $175 a pop...   you want to protect them- but I don't know anyone in the USA or Japan still making them.

     Beautiful package with the Owari there having it all.

Thank you for that. I'd never caught it. I underestimated the cost.

 

"Price start from  16,200 ( JPY )"

Baseline:   $150 for silk jacket  +$175 for box +$250 for the papers [+ wait time]. Add shipping.

$575 to 600 just for the accoutrements.

Curran,

Elliott's better half will make those fukurin bags I showed images of earlier very reasonably - here's an image of some I had done:

Thanks guys,

Yes both the fitted box and its cover are certainly of the highest quality as is the tsuba itself.

I have had a couple of offer prices on ebay but nothing sensible yet - but I am in no rush to part with it.
